FINO's back to the blogging world...Some June Wedding favorites

Sorry folks for totally slacking on the blogging.  Just after completing a few grueling months of construction on our studio, the busy wedding season began!  We know, we know...these are just poor excuses.  We even took such cool "after" pictures of our renovated studio space BUT of course they are saved on another computer.  We'll get those up here at some point.. Maybe at our 20th year anniversary.  ;)

Moving on to more exciting news.  Here are some of our favorite shots from a couple of recent June weddings.

Alisa & Chris June 2010- Willowdale in Topsfield MA

It was so great working with Alisa and Chris.  They knew exactly what they wanted (Alisa is a designer/artist so she has an incredible eye for things!) but left a lot of the overall design up to us.  We loved their passion for unique flowers and their attention to detail making sure everyting coincided with their "enchanted garden" theme.  Their centerpieces were coppery-brown chargers filled with a bed of moss, succulents and clusters of flowers.  Manzanita branches sprayed in a deep chocolate brown were placed into the moss bed laying assymetrically.  The escort card table was made up of 4 large coppery-brown chargers filled with a low bed of moss.  Alisa wrote the name of each guest on flat black river rocks and placed them on the moss in rows.  The chocolate brown manzanitas placed in a tall cylinder filled with the rocks and orchids tied to the branches added the finishing touch.  The bouquet below was one of the bridesmaids.  The overall colors of the wedding were emerald green, chocolate brown and magenta/purple tones.  Willowdale is such a unique beautiful spot tucked away in the woods ofTopsfield.  This wedding was a perfect fit for the venue.  Congrats to Alisa and Chris! Thank you for letting us take part in your special day.

Flora & Rory (aka "Flory") June 2010 -Boston Public Library

You know when you meet that couple that is just so darn cute together it makes you want to.....well, that's Flory!  We couldnt get over how adorable these two were.  During their mock-up meeting they were both so into the centerpiece and sharing in the discussion on what flowers they loved and the ones they werent so crazy about.  The enthusiasm that they shared in planning their wedding together was admirable!  Their theme for their library wedding was just that...books.  Oh and, lots of romantic and elegant touches.  The flowers were lush and whimsical.  We used cream tones with blends of orange-peach and pink hues too.  The peonies and hydrangea and lots of roses helped make the arrangements full and soft looking.  Flora and Rory, we wish you a wonderful life together!  Thanks for choosing Fino!
